So Nadine Hutton has been at it again. Challenging me to do Bohemian Rhapsody. Tsek!
I just can’t say no to her, and besides it’s a daunting challenge. So many vocal parts and so little time (I hate spending more than a week on a cover, start to finish). In this case it was threatening to take longer so I had to cut it short and render and publish so there are some rough bits, but…
When all is said and done it was fun and I guess that’s all that counts.
So here goes – Bohemian Rhapsody with little old me trying to sing 11 different vocal parts. Yikes!
While I’ve got your attention: I’ve started posting high-quality renders of my original songs on my Airborne Music paysite. It’s a deviation from the traditional way of payment in that you do not pay for the album but rather suppot the artist at a cost of $1 per month. That’s right, access to all my music for less than the price of a beer every month.
I’d appreciate it if you would considering joining this site and supporting me.
As an aside – Airborne is a South African site so let’s try and get their idea going and spread the word.
There’s a video explaining how it works here AirborneMusic.com.
PS – Here’s how Nadine described the song when I shared the first rough take with her: “I can almost see this as a opera of insanity – the monologue of a madman running through an empty house whispering at times, shouting, frenzied, resigned. The chorus is absolutely brilliant. A carnival of the voices in his head.”
